MP Hails Syria, Iraq’s Resistance to Foreign-Backed Terrorism
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian lawmaker lauded the Syrian and Iraqi nations for their resolute resistance to the plots hatched by the foreigners, saying continuation of that approach will mark an eventual defeat of mercenaries.
“The resistance shown by the Syrian and Iraqi people… results in the failure of such (Takfiri) groups and the ominous objectives of their supporters,” Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mansour Haqiqatpour told the Tasnim News Agency on Sunday.
Citing the atrocities committed by the Takfiri groups, such as the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Haqiqatpour said the US is backing such terrorist groups in a bid to secure Israel’s safety.
In relevant comments on June 29, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that according to hard evidence, the intelligence services of the enemy have a hand in creating turmoil in certain Islamic societies, including Iraq.
Since June 10, Iraq has witnessed a fresh wave of violence fueled by the ISIL terrorists. Violence in Iraq escalated last month after militants from the terrorist group took control of large swathes of the Arab country. The ISIL has vowed to continue its raid towards Baghdad.
Meanwhile, Iraqi security forces backed by thousands of volunteers have pushed ahead with their campaign against the militants and managed to retake control of several areas captured by the ISIL.
